In their first public communication since the NHL lockout ended on Sunday, the Winnipeg Jets issued the following statement to the public late Monday afternoon.
We are extremely pleased that the combined efforts over the past several months between the NHL and the NHLPA have resulted in a tentative agreement on a new 10 year Collective Bargaining Agreement.
We would like to acknowledge and thank all of our fans, partners, broadcasters, employees and our community for being patient with our organization, the League and the Players during the negotiation process that led up to this exciting news.
In the coming days we expect the agreement to be ratified and within the same time frame also expect to receive confirmation of the new 2012-2013 schedule, the commencement date of training camp and the date and time of the Winnipeg Jets home opener at the MTS Centre.
Upon confirmation of the revised 2013 schedule fans can expect to receive, within two business days, their Jets season ticket package via Canada Post. Upon receipt, season ticket holders can log on to MY JETS ACCOUNT for complete account updates.
The Winnipeg Jets will continually provide regular updates to all of our fans as new information becomes available to us. Please refer to our website at www.winnipegjets.com on a regular basis.
On behalf of True North Sports & Entertainment Limited and the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club, we thank you for your patience and look forward to another exciting season of Winnipeg Jets hockey at the MTS Centre and on TSN Jets & TSN 1290 in 2013.
The statement was signed by True North Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ludlow and Norva Riddell, VP of sales and marketing.
